I LOVE Avocados! So, today I would like to share with you my own version of Venezuelan avocado sauce, or as we know it back home “Guasacaca”.
Many people compare Venezuelan Guasacaca with Guacamole, but for me, they are two very different flavors. Guasacaca can be served as a sauce to top a steak, hamburger, hotdog, tacos, and tostadas. Even to dress other side dishes, such as potatoes, yuca, or anything else you can think of. Guasacaca can also be used as a simple dip to serve with chips.
There are many ways to prepare this sauce, all depends on the personal taste.
For example, if you like it spicier you can add more garlic and/or onion – my family prefers avocado as the main flavor, for this reason, I add little garlic. Another difference you can see in my recipe is that I use corn oil instead of olive oil. I personally do not like the taste that olive oil gives to this sauce, but it’s your choice which oil are you going to use.

- This is the best part! This recipe is quick and easy to prepare. Put everything into a food processor or a blender and process until you get the consistency you want. Taste and adjust seasoning.
- You can add more garlic and/or onion to give it more kick.
- Feel free to change the type of oil used. I don’t like the addition of olive oil taste so I use corn oil. You can always use a light-tasting olive oil if you don’t have corn oil!
- Avocados are ripe once they yield to a firm squeeze. If your avocados are ripe before you’re ready to use it, store it in the fridge.
- To cut the avocados, carefully cut the avocado in half lengthwise around the seed. Twist to open and the remove the seed and scoop out the avocado with a spoon.
